Yup, they are dust or dried water spots on your lens. If you take a lens cleaner cloth, your problem should go away.

Btw, is that a standard poodle? I've got one.

From your photo it looks like you were shooting into the light. A lot of times what will happen is, this light will come into the camera lens and bounce around causing the effect you see. It's just one of those things that happens. There's probably nothing wrong with your camera.

maybe the dog was just drunk...

j/k, I had that happen on my a70, luckily it broke and I got a new a70 and it hasn't happened since. although I haven't tried shooting against a light. by reading people's experiences with the camera, I'm sure I'll be seeing them again.

Then length of exposure can effect if the dirt is visible or not. It's so easy to clean the lens, I would do that.

The guess about lens flare (the light from a source which is in front of the shooter bouncing around in all the glass in the lens) isn't right, I don't think. Any flare I'v eseen appears as multiple rings in a line towards the light source. What you got is too random for that (unless that is one funky lens design?)
